Master Plant Sciences


Plant research faces major issues for the future: ensuring agricultural production for food and feed as well as health while demography increases and acreage decreases, identifying and developing new possibilities for replacing fossil resources, and finally enabling producing that respects the environment in the context of climate change.

These issues raise many new scientific challenges. How plants interact with a changing environment? How do plants protect themselves from stresses? How do they manage their resources (nitrogen, water, light) in a changing environment? What are the limitations to growth and biomass production?

These challenges also require new tools: plant genomics, the use of natural diversity, high-throughput phenotyping with automated growth facilities, high resolution imaging…

The Master’s degree in plant sciences meets these challenges. You are a student in biology, agronomy and have a strong background in plant sciences. You have a passion for plants and want to make this your life job. You are heading to fundamental or applied research in plant sciences (PhD level) or to junior manager jobs in crop protection or plant breeding (graduate level). This master’s degree is for you!
